South Barwon best performed SES team at Australasian Rescue Challenge 2017

South Barwon best performed SES team at Australasian Rescue Challenge 2017

Published 24/07/2017
Congratulations to the team from South Barwon SES, awarded 'Best performed SES team’ at the Australasian Rescue Challenge 2017 held in Hamilton, New Zealand over the past week.

This is a tremendous result for what has been a very dedicated effort by our volunteers. The team was put to the test through a number of scenarios including realistic road rescues involving multiple live casualties, as well as ‘trauma challenges’ where teams responded to a range of serious incidents such as chainsaw accidents.

This is as close as it gets to the real thing on the road and the teams are assessed by an expert panel from across Australasia.

We’re looking forward to the team returning and sharing what they’ve learned with the SES volunteers across the state.
